For me I’ve never been a Beatles fan. I don’t listen to their music, but I’ve got to admire how they have changed the music world. There is one particular Beatle that is being celebrated today. If he were alive today, John Lennon would have been 70 years old. On this day in 1940, John was born in Liverpool , England. He only lived a short 40 years when he was murdered in New York City on December 8, 1980 after the release of his come back album, Double Fantasy.

Nearly 30 years later, as people remember him today, Google decided to do something special. We all know from time to time, they have special logos up celebrating holidays are anniversaries of various thing. This time they’ve done something they haven’t before. Todays Google logo is a animated video that can also be found on YouTube. I was able to track the video down. So without further ado, here it is. Happy Birthday John Lennon.
